Menacing Mueller probe beginning to rattle Trump

"Michael Cohen is lying and he's trying to get a reduced sentence for things that have nothing to do with me", he added.

Appearing on MSNBC Thursday night, Deutsch told host Ari Melber that Trump was "owned" by Russian President Vladimir Putin, with shady business dealings that will be remembered long after his administration ends. Both men are caught up in Mueller's Russian Federation investigation over claims that they may have conspired with WikiLeaks while the organization was releasing emails and documents that painted a poor picture of Democrat Hillary Clinton during the 2016 presidential election.

Adam Schiff, the ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee, said there was a "counterintelligence imperative" for its members, in the new Congress, to continue to probe the Trump Organization's financial links to Russian Federation.

"He's got himself a big prison sentence". "We watched him all of a sudden say, 'No, I need to help myself, help my family, my country'".

Among other lies, Cohen said he told Congress that all discussions about building a Trump Tower in Moscow had ended by January 2016, when they had actually continued until June of that year.

At issue with Stone, a GOP political operative and Trump confidante, is what he knows about the timing and release of WikiLeaks publication of hacked emails from John Podesta and other Democrats during the 2016 presidential campaign.

River Plate vs Boca Juniors return leg postponed for second day running
It did so after representatives from Boca argued that playing the game so soon after Saturday's attack would be unfair. Away supporters have been banned from football matches in Argentina since 2013 because of recurring violence.

It also references "Individual 1" in the context of winning the nomination ahead of the 2016 election.

He has previously identified "individual 1" as Mr Trump.

In August, Cohen, 52, pleaded guilty to campaign finance violations related to payments before the election to two women who alleged they had affairs with Trump years prior. Cohen had said the talks ended when he determined that the project was not feasible.

Cohen admitted he lied when he told Congress he never agreed to travel to Russian Federation for the project, and falsely claimed that he "never considered" asking Trump to travel to Russian Federation in 2016.

As part of this deal, Cohen pleaded guilty to lying to Congress regarding a Trump Tower project in Moscow.

In a press scrum outside court moments after the hearing, Cohen said nothing to reporters. "Mr Cohen will continue to co-operate". And nothing said in court, or in associated court filings, addressed whether Trump or his aides had directed Cohen to mislead Congress.

Trump cuts 'disaster' court out of trans military ruling
In fact, there is considerable evidence that it is the discharge and banning of such individuals that would have such effects". Francisco urged the court to grant all three cases, hear them together and issue a decision by the end of the term.

As he left the White House on Thursday morning to attend the G-20 summit of the world's largest economies in Buenos Aires, Argentina, Trump falsely claimed that his efforts were well known throughout the campaign and that he had every right to pursue the Moscow project. He told the court he had arranged those payments, created to keep the women quiet before the presidential vote, at Trump's direction.

Undisclosed payments to bury embarrassing stories about a political candidate can be treated as a violation of United States campaign finance laws.

Rozov's signed letter was sent back to Cohen by Felix Sater, another Trump world figure who had worked on and off for the Trump Organization and operated as a government informant following a 1998 conviction in a stock fraud case.

What else is going on with the Mueller inquiry?

Mueller, who served as Federal Bureau of Investigation director under Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama, was appointed special counsel to continue the probe after Comey's firing. "Michael Cohen is a liar", said Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani. He has said the project was in its early stages in the fall of 2015, as Trump's presidential campaign heated up.

Trump has denied publicly that he had any knowledge at the time and said as much in written answers recently given to Mueller's office, according to reports on Wednesday.

Trump Has Submitted Written Answers To Mueller Team
Trump's legal team has indicated that the president would not answer any additional questions aside from potential follow-ups. Mueller could theoretically still look to subpoena the president if he feels the answers are not satisfactory.
